Surface 2 Gets Firmware Updates for October, But Yet Another Wi-Fi Fix for Surface Pro 3 is Coming Soon

Nothing for other Surface devices

This month's Patch Tuesday has arrived, and with it (some of) the month's Surface firmware updates. Today, however, only the Surface 2 received firmware updates. Microsoft says we'll see yet another Wi-Fi fix for Surface Pro 3 "in the coming weeks," however.

You may recall that Microsoft last week issued an out-of-band Surface Pro 3 firmware update as well. That update enables apps—like the Surface Hub app—to configure Surface Pen on that device.

Today, only Surface 2 was updated. And it received a ton of fixes as part of an update named "System Firmware Update – 10/14/2014":

Surface 2 UEFI update (v4.22.500) addresses case where the battery drains under the 0% level and will not charge.

System Aggregator Firmware update (v1.0.51500.0) increases the overall reliability and compatibility with a Surface Pro Type Cover.

Surface Platform Power Driver update (v2.0.716.0) adjusts the minimum charge current to address the case where the battery drains under the 0% level and will not charge, and enhances the overall system stability.

Surface Accessory Device update (v2.0.671.0) enhances the user experience with a Surface cover.

Audio and Display driver set (v9.17.13.2822) improves sound and video display performance, and resolves the case where a display driver caused system instability on resuming the system from sleep.

Surface Cover Click (v2.0.643.0) update enhances the user experience when connecting/disconnecting a Surface Pro Type Cover.

Surface Type Cover Filter Device (v2.0.682.0) adds support for a Japanese Surface Pro Type Cover on non-Japanese Surface 2 models.
